« I started electronics when I was so young that it really became just like another language. Some people speak a bunch of languages. My foreign language is actually electronics. »
That’s how Dave Hill defines his world. A world where the language is electronics, and the expanding borders the quality of sound.
The world of Dave Hill
A film by Alain Le Kim
Dave Hill has his own world in Superior, Wisconsin. In his Inland Sea Recording Studio, he engineers music without any compromise. He actually built the studio himself, because when he started, he could not afford to buy the necessary equipment. So he designed all the electronic gear necessary to achieve the highest sound quality of any recording. And then, all the machines he designed for his own use have been produced at his company, Crane Song, for the other sound engineers around the world.
Dave Hill loves nature. Living in the grand natural environment of Lake Superior, he does not drive, walking every day in the countryside boarding the great lake. In this beautiful environment, his daily walks enable him to think about the next product he will design for the Crane Song range of high end gear. From the Hedd converter to the Spider set of preamps, these dream pieces of audio equipment reflect the « no-compromise » approach of Dave. Indeed Superior gear!
